Latina Community Spirit Award: This award acknowledges a Latina with a spirit of compassion and selfless service, who is focused on helping others. It is someone who supports a cause, created by herself or representing another.
The leadership team is preparing all the details with the values mentioned above as the main guiding principles.
"There are many ways to celebrate women who think they are ordinary, when in fact they are actually doing extraordinary things. This Latinas Voice platform, the awards and all the upcoming projects are focused on all those women who suffer in silence, and those who don't know how to follow the path to success. We have united all of our hearts, resources and strategies to make your voice count," said Monica Rivers, member of the executive team.
Latinas Voice Leadership Trainer and Coach and Executive Member Claudia Guillèn, considers Latinas Voice as a platform for expansion, growth, contribution and inspiration.
"As a Latina woman I have a voice, as a leader I have the ability to transform, and as a professional I have the responsibility to contribute and add value," she said. "The Latinas Voice Awards was born with the desire to be the stage to offer the deserved recognition to wonderful women who are making a difference in their daily lives. In our five categories, we want the inspiring message of their actions and achievements to shine and be heard and with its brightness many more women feel inspired to shine as well. Because when you find your authentic voice, nobody stops you."
Edith Lopez, a Latinas Voice executive team member, believes that every woman has a greater purpose than what she believes for herself.
"And when we Latinas find the motives in our hearts, we are life givers, generators of opportunities, capable of paving the way where previously there was none," she added. "Proving in this way that it is possible and without knowing becoming an inspiration for others. It is our Latino heritage and our legacy. For this reason, we want to honor five outstanding Latinas, one for each category, recognizing their courage, their struggle, their sacrifices and their passion to achieve their goals. We want to be part of their story. Soon, we will be a million Latinas, but we are all one, because what blesses one blesses all!"
